"A warm blanket has always brought comfort to us since we were children. We try to give some of that comfort back in the time of need."
It's a "HECK" of a Blanket
We make no sew fleece blankets with scriptures or words of comfort embroidered on them. With the help of Life Gift (Texas' Organ Procurement Organization) they are handed out in the local hospitals of Texas to Donor's family members at the time of their greatest loss. It is our hope that the families leave with something they can hold on to in remembrance of their loved one. We also attach a card to each blanket that provides contact information and a 'Facebook' address. We encourage people to come together and share their stories of their loved one, their personal struggles, and to help others who have faced similar circumstances. It is our hope, that knowing you are not alone and that there are others who might be able to understand what you are going through will help you make it through another day. From our personal experience, the I.C.U. waiting room is cold and uncomfortable. We were in one for three days while we waited and did not think to grab a blanket as we rushed out the door. It is our hope and wish that these blankets given to the family, may bring warmth and comfort as they wait for news of their loved one. Please, if you have experienced a tragic loss of a loved one, and need someone to whom you can talk to, contact us or find us on Facebook by searching (its a heck of a blanket).
